What this group is about

I don’t know about you, but I have too many things started. Join me in my quest to get finish what I’ve started. The deal is, for every 2 projects I finish, I get to reward myself by starting something new. You can make your own rules, or give the group ideas for new rules as we go. I think it’ll be fun to ask this group for advice on what project to wrap up next, show my progress with photo’s, get motivation from each other when I want to break my own agreement (trust me, I am weak willed when it comes to new projects).

TUFO - means Tuesday UFO - those of us interested try to make a small dent in whatever UFO we are working on. Tuesday is simply the day the Connecting Threads gals get together to sew and craft...you can make it any day you like, but we got a kick out of the title. Once in awhile we can't make it on Tuesday so we move it to Wednesday - yup WUFO. Report here what you are planning to work on, then the next day, let us all know how you did. Nothing is required, it's just for fun.

That's right Traci - your stash is not a UFO. Did you have a particular project in mind for that purple floral that you just had to have 2 yards of? (3 years ago) I didn't. It's just in my stash waiting to be used.

Hi. I just joined the group because I also have plenty of UFOs. I like QuiltDragon's comment though....if I don't have to count the piles of fabric that have a pattern with them as an UFO, then I only have about 12 UFOs. Otherwise, I have about 30. What about kits? I guess they should count as an UFO because it would be hard to use the fabric for anything else...I think my UFO count is going up again. I better get back to quilting.

I've just joined the group. I have plenty of UFOs. My goals for now include finishing a baby/toddler quilt for a friend of mine, a bargello class project (new), and a charity quilt. Unfortunately my computer attached to my printer/scanner is not working, so I can't show any pictures, yet. Back to work!

Thank goodness piles of fabric with patterns don't count as UFOs - you can always use that fabric for another _important_ project. Looking forward to checking out the before/after UFOs. I recently cleaned out my storage room and found lots of those piles with patterns and divided them up in my stash. That left me with a few finished tops and some half-done ones. Today, I'm off to start finishing one of those (mixed in with cutting the fabric for a new UFO). I think I'll take some photos of them for the frig - sort of like a quiting diet reminder :)

Hi everyone! I just joined a few days ago and went through the closet and pulled out all my UFOs. Not quite as bad as I had expected. I actually sat down yesterday and finished up one of them - a small wallhanging. That leaves me 2 applique projects, 2 tops to quilt, and 5 others in various stages of completion. Really want to get them all completed but there are so many other projects I want to start on :) Well, now off to the sewing room to clean up the mess I made gathering all the UFOs and then which UFO to start on next?

OK - I bit the bullet and went through the stuff on my tall bookcase. Hmmm, not as bad as I thought. Many were bundled projects that I haven't even started yet; just the pattern and appropriate fabric. Don't count as UFOs right? Soooo - officially I have 13 UFOs, and a few of those are very close to being completed (borders, mostly). A few are from classes I've taken (never enuf time in class to complete those projects; so it turns out to be another UFO!). No more new projects! (except, of course, the 3 Christmas quilts I need to make by next Christmas). :) Di in TN

My list consists of what is stored in my memory. The gray matter fades on occasion. What I can remember that I started, where I can remember I put it and what else I may find that had faded from memory along the way. Dear All, please wish me luck!

My LIST consists of whatever my hand lands on first. The one I finished and what I am currently trying to get finished just happened to be on top of the pile LOL

My UFO list is a virtual one so that I don't give up before I start. I figure that if I post a "Before" and "After" picture of them as I go along, I can count how many "Afters" I had later...when I can no longer find any more "Befores". lol Everyone here gets to decide for ourselves what works best for us. We just encourage each other.

Photos...there is a photo section that you can go see the photos that have been uploaded. Also, for the photos in the message...when you go to add the comment look at the line of symbols above the box for typing. There is a little rectangle with green and blue in it and that's where you click to insert a photo in the message.

Last year was year of the baby quilts. This year is year of the ufos. I have vowed to finish one ufo this year. I have about eight, I think. (Last year lots of people I knew were having babies. I'd finish one and find out two more were pregnant. I fininished the last one in October.)
